Houghton Cycling Club was established in 1932 and is one of the longest established cycling clubs in North East England.
The club is open to all means of cyclist both young and old and caters for the various cycling disciplines including Road, Time Trial, Touring, Mountain, Audax and Cyclo-cross.
Our Sunday ride program is very popular with our members. We offer three ride options: The Leisure Run, The Club Run (Social Ride) and The Training Run (High Tempo).
Throughout the summer (May – September) the club promote a series of 9 mile time trials. Other events include the AUDAX and Circuit Racing at Hetton Park and on the Nissan test track plus a number of other events including the popular “Quarrington Hill Climb” competition in October.
The club has an active ROAD and CX racing scene with several members at Cat 2/3/4 British Cycling level. These members are competing at a high level and are keen to support anybody wishing to try racing for the first time.
Several members have chosen to specialise on Open Time Trials and are also doing well this year. The club is affiliated to Cycling Time Trials and other regional and national bodies including British Cycling, Northumberland & Durham Cycling Association.
Members can join in with various social events including the club meeting which takes place every Friday evening between 7.30 & 9.30pm at Kepier Hall behind St. Michael’s Church in Houghton le Spring town centre.
Other events of note include the annual awards presentation in November and the Christmas Lunch Club Run in December.
